Jon Lonsdale

Senior Lecturer

Department: Architecture and Built Environment

In 2002 I graduated from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh with an honours degree in Construction Management.  After teaching part time on various courses at a local college I decided to take the plunge and go into education full time, accepting a position as a lecturer and programme leader at Newcastle College delivering on both construction and civil engineering programmes.

I joined Northumbria University in 2008 and currently deliver on a range of modules at various levels primarily related to construction technology and site surveying.  At present, I am the Programme Leader for the Foundation Degree in Quantity Surveying. I am also a member of Institute for Learning (IfL).

In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf and squash, and take a keen interest in most sports including rugby, football and cricket.  Once a year I also manage to complete various local runs (gannin’ alang the Scotswood Road for the Blaydon Race!) and the Great North Run.  On rainy days, I attempt to get through my extensive collection of books and I am beginning to understand the complexities of photography.
